WHERE: 8th Avenue Terrace, 31/1176 Gold Coast Highway

WHEN: Wednesday, 6th December 2017

TIME: 6.00PM - 9.00PM


TOPIC // Rewriting The Rules Of Business - Heart Centered Leadership

This is going to be a beautiful night to connect over a shared platter style dinner. With a 2 course meal and glass of bubbles package, included in the ticket price.

The team at 8th Ave Terrace have created an awesome menu - vegan, gluten free, and dessert. There will be something for everyone.

We will also have an inspiring speaker, the lovely Fabienne Costa from YCL Jewels. Fab has made some clear decisions about how she wanted to build her global online business and the values she wanted to retain even as it continued to put demands on her and what she stands for. 


Fabienne Costa, Founder and Creative Director YCL Jewels

Fab, as she is known to friends, followed her passion to launch YCL Jewels only 4 years ago. She was within weeks from graduating in Nursing studies when she decided to leave it all and follow her childhood love of creating jewellery. Her pieces are created with intent, and beautifully fall in line with your chakras as they are worn. These stunning creations have grabbed the attention of clients the world over, including Jennifer Hawkins, internationally singer Lorde, and Delta Goodrem. The label is strongly driven by Fab’s desires to have a sustainable and 100% cruelty free business. Fab has also created a work environment for her team around strong rules of flexibility and inclusion to allow the best from the people she relies on. 

Fab will be sharing about being true to yourself in the business you build, and ensuring you write your own rules. 


Avalon Beben // Co-founder The Surfboard Warehouse and Trader Trove

The Surfboard Warehouse has grown to Six locations in six years short years.  From Mooloolaba to Byron and an Australia wide online business, it has been a crazy ride.  TSW recently did a collaboration with hunky Game of Thrones actor Jason Mamoa which got them global attention.

From the lessons learnt in the building of that business with her husband Tim, Avalon Beben created her own business, Trader Trove.  Avalon said recently” this was a project of love and healing”. 

Having her own creative outlet that she was able to pour herself into authentically has not only been a community success, financially rewarding, but has also created a new energy and health that she needed with a demanding life as a businesswoman, wife of a business owner, and mother of 2 young children.  It even allowed her to be released from prescribed medication.  
Hear her story of reinvention, success her way, healing, and learning to release those insurmountable pressures we put on ourselves.


In the spirit of giving, we would love to invite you to bring along a piece of business clothing that you don't use , that is still in great condition. We are going to donate these to the team at Dress For Success. They support women who are returning to the workforce that may come from various backgrounds of hardships.




If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.
